On tap at Stone World Bistro & Gardens. Served in a very classy goblet. WAY TO GO STONE. It only took them more than a year to transition their 8oz pour glasses from that hideous miniature pint glass into a nice classy goblet.
Comes as a clear golden orange. Looks lively. Nice white foam cap sitting on top. There was probably more to the flavor than what I will describe but this was a grapefruit hop bomb. It's fairly dry for its strength, but there is a noticeable DIPA type sweetness lingering in the background. Overall a general feeling of crispness to go along with that assertive grapefruit punch. Really enjoyed this beer.
Serving type: on-tap

This is ridiculously fresh. By my calculations (damn Julian dating) is July 11th (today is 7/28) was the bottling date. Very nice. This has a clear, golden hue with some quickly disappearing finger of white head. While this didn't explode on the nose, there were some nice, subtle aromas of astringent pine (one of my favorites), and a clean, bright citrus fragrance. The tastes were lemony, fresh, and bright... with a nice piney contribution. Really crisp and refreshing (same refreshing palate brought to mind by DirtWolf). Bit oily on the mouthfeel, but expected in a big IPA style. This was a very nice, easy drinking Imperial. I'd highly recommend giving it a try.

I was surprised to see this in the local supermarket in small town Vermont. They also had the regular Lil Sumpin, but at the same price point, I chose the 'Extra'. Poured from 12 oz bottle into a willy glass.
It's a beautiful clear, light, pale golden-yellow...almost as pale as BMC beers. Adequate head and minimal lacing.
The aroma was the big surprise. I'm a homebrewer and taking the first whiff of this beer is just like opening up a freshly-purchased package of hop pellets. The hop aroma is THAT strong. I am impressed.
The taste follows the nose with strong hops and just a little maltiness. The packaging says there is additional wheat added to this, so I expected more of that flavor profile to come out, but it's very subtle. Most prominent in the taste is the hops - dank, piney, resin, some lemon - but just fresh as can be.
The mouth is slightly thin and very dry, with nice carbonation throughout.
Overall, I love this beer. Its very refreshing, yet with in-your-face hops.
